The OSAVI is best used in areas with relatively sparse vegetation, where soil is visible through the canopy. It is based on the Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (SAVI) and uses a standard value of 0.16 for the canopy background adjustment factor. Researchers have determined that this value provides greater soil variation than SAVI for low vegetation cover areas, while demonstrating increased sensitivity to vegetation cover greater than 50%.
